A Photo a Week Challenge: Public Transportation

It’s been a year since I did a transportation challenge, and the last time also featured photos from a trip to Chicago. I guess that’s because Salt Lake City is such a personal transportation city. Everyone I know owns a car, and most of the people I know drive their cars daily. But anyway, we just came back from Chicago, and we had the chance to catch the “L” to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. (Maybe next week I’ll do a sports theme and post a picture of the game.) In a city that is almost entirely brick (because of the Chicago fire of Mrs. O’Leary fame), we found it amazing that many of the elevated platforms for the the trains are wood.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE PHOTOS THAT FEATURE THE DIFFERENT MEANS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. I have to laugh. We don’t have ANY public transportation. NOT even a taxi. But I might have some pictures from other places. I shall have to look. A train runs through town, but it doesn’t stop here!

    1. There are places like that. Salt Lake is big enough to have buses and light rail trains. We also have a contest train that runs from Ogden to Provo, about 85 miles north and south.

  2. I’ve only been on the L once, but we got off at this same station. 🙂 In the suburb where we live, you can catch the Metra train into the city, ending in Union Station (wonder how many of those there are in the US?) and I’ve done that more than a time or two.
